INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2013 Long's Garden Catalog: This rustic red brown has a slight royal infusion in the falls. Rough as the wild horse-riding Vaqueros that it is named after, but early seedlings of this variety show good promise in the breeding of Luminatas. Easily 9 buds, but the branching is not the best. However, the seedlings have shown very good branching. Very good grower, with strong sturdy stalks.
